cried out to you and were delivered; they trusted in you and
were not put to shame.
as for me, I am a worm and not human, scorned by all and
despised by the people.
who see me laugh me to scorn; they curl their lips and wag
their heads, saying,

you, if God delights in you.”

upon my mother’s breast.

Thanks by Giving to Others: 200 Random Acts of
Thanksgiving till the first Sunday of Advent you are
encouraged to perform random acts of kindness. This is another
way we can give to others to give thanks for the 200 years we
have been able to gather in this building as a worshipping
community. A random act of kindness can be as simple as
smiling at everyone you see, or buying a coffee for the next
person in line at the coffee shop. You determine what the
random act of kindness will be. If you’re looking for ideas,
though, pick up one of the sheets at the back of the church.
When you’ve performed your act of kindness, tie a ribbon
(available at the back of the church) to the giving tree.
Let’s see if we can tie 200 ribbons on the tree by Dec.
